For this project, I decided to keep my usual motif of night skies. These pictures tell a story of my journey in life. Past, present, future. The past is of younger me, not sure where I stand in the universe. I can't see my potential, so I'm looking down. In the present, I see my potential. I see my goals and dreams in the stars and moon. In the future, I can see myself grabbing my life's dream, realizing that I have out grown most of my goals and see much more potential for myself.
This was a difficult project for me, surprisingly. I wasn't sue how to show this time line and make it clear to people. I realized that perspective was a big part in showing this message. I'm glad I was able to get many different angles in these pictures. The last one is by far my favorite.
This image was based on my feeling that I express myself better with words than images and objects.
The tutorial that inspired the style of this piece: http://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-make-a-typographic-retro-space-face--psd-3828
In the beginning, I wasn't sure how to format the picture. I thought that it was a bit drab, but I hoped that it would become complex eventually. I was also a bit lost as to how I would design the words to fit my face so I looked up a few tutorial. My favorite one was the link above.
eventually, I made the tutorial my own and added my own colors to the background. I like to think of night skies and galaxies as my motif. I tend to add those in my art pieces all the time. I really liked how this piece came out. It really shows the complexities with visual and written aspects.
